DEIRDRE: “Do many know what is foretold, that Deirdre will be the ruin of the Sons of Usna, and have a little grave by herself, and a story will be told forever?”

The final masterpiece by John Millington Synge, author of The Playboy of the Western World.  A beautiful and sad love story based on the Irish myth of Deirdre, the foremost heroine of ancient Ireland.  Promised in wedlock since her birth to the King of Ulster once she comes of age, she rejects the arranged marriage and flees with her lover Naisi.  Synge’s play is the most famous dramatization of Ireland’s most beloved romance.

 

Directed by Kay Martinovich.
